It seems like everyone is paying attention to Slim Devices lately. The nice hardware developer has made a name for itself producing a simple but effective wireless MP3 transmitter called the SqueezeBox, with its $249 price tag, it’s said to be one of the best on the market.
No longer content to dwell in lo-fi, Slim Devices had poised itself to enter the more aggressive arena of hi-fi. Later this month, it will release the Transporter, a high-end network enabled MP3 receiver that for $2000 is sure to make audiophiles geek-out with delight. GigaOM is running a piece currently about the evolution of this small Mountain View company. It’s recommended reading that might help you come test time.
